Annapolis, Md. – The Maryland Democratic Party today announced raising $334,768 into its federal account in June, with $415,310 on hand to help support federal candidates in the 2016 general election.

We aren’t taking anything for granted, and we have the resources we need to help support our candidates for federal office.”
